full of mistakes and not worthwhile I can't say this book is a complete waste of time, because it did actually help me a little, but probably not enough to be worthwhile.
Barron's has made better When test day came, I was shocked - it was hilariously easy, so much so that I almost felt cheated for being made to worry. When it comes to test prepartions, being accurate is the most important - the same level materials and practice tests are essential to success. Barron's book is overly-difficult and not worth the money or worry.
It wasn't hard people...
Harder is NOT better!
Waste of time and money, too hard, not beneficial. |
8. Multiple Regression : Testing and Interpreting Interactions by Leona S. Aiken, Stephen G. West | |

Book Description "I think that the coverage of the text is excellent. It carves out a seriously neglected area and it very thoroughly covers the topic. The authors are very knowledgeable concerning the literature. This is an excellent text that provides a detailed, yet comprehensible account of how to estimate, test, and probe interactions in regression models." --David A. Kenny, University of Connecticut "Leona S. Aiken and Stephen G. West do an excellent job of structuring, testing, and interpreting multiple regression models containing interactions, curvilinear effects, or a combination of both. Procedures for testing and graphical displays of interactions between categorical variables have been done for years but none seems to have provided a comprehensive treatment or guideline for the analysis of interactions between continuous variables. . . . Aiken and West, however, address those issues quite effectively and thoroughly. . . . An aid to any graduate and/or researcher in their analysis of continuous variables. Highly recommended for graduate libraries." --Choice "The book would serve very well as a reference for applied researchers and methodologists. . . . In particular, this would be an excellent reference for anyone who encounters a multivariable prediction problem and has reason to believe that either a nonlinear model or a model including a variable product term would be appropriate." --Contemporary Psychology Researchers in a variety of disciplines frequently encounter problems in which interactions are predicted between two or more continuous variables. However, the current literature regarding how to analyze, interpret, and present interactions in multiple regression has been confusing. In this comprehensive volume, Leona S. Aiken and Stephen G. West provide academicians and researchers with a clear set of prescriptions for estimating, testing, and probing interactions in regression models. Including the latest research in the area, such as Fuller's work on the corrected/constrained estimator, the book is appropriate for anyone who uses multiple regression to estimate models or for those enrolled in courses on multivariate statistics. ...

revolutionary The basic idea about interaction is that the relationship between two variables were different according to a third variable. For example, some risk factors (such as poor family income) may affect children's academic achievement in a negative way. However, if the parents provide enough support on their children's study, then it's possible that the risk factors will no longer influence their children test scores. Therefore, with low support, risk factors are very effective, but with high support, risk factors have not effects. This book teaches you how to probe this relationship in a systematic way, it covers 2-way, 3-way interactions and also quardratic relationships. If you fully understand this book, the techniques you have will be enough for a masters thesis in your area.
A MUST have for anyone using regression analysis
Invaluable and accessible

Better look elsewhere... I decided to learn Calculus on my own before I start Cegep, as something to do in my spare time. That being said, I'm having a very hard time with this book. I CAN get through it, but it seems needlessly difficult. The explanations in here aren't the best for the everyday reader. Many concepts and ideas seem to have been omitted, leaving the reader wondering if he's skipped something important or didn't understand well. And the things which are explained are rigorous definitions that just aren't accessible. The book is littered with very hard 'Try it yourself' questions to which the book doesn't give any answers, and even the answers provided for the excersises and final exam are not developped in a way so that you can understand if you get it wrong. There are many other Calculus books out there, so stay away from this one. I guess this book may be alright for someone who just needs a quick revision, but if you're starting from scratch, this book is terrible And I'd like to point out I was releived to see that other people hated this book too ^_^ I'm glad it's not just me...
Demystified? Not likely.
Calculus made Difficult It seriously confuses and complicates simple principles by explaining them in notation only a mathematician could love. Then it gets worse. The author periodically presents the reader with a "Try it yourself problem" that ought to be called a "Puzzle" because it is more complex than any previous example, and no correct solution is tendered. This only leaves the reader wondering if he got it right after all. It shakes the student's confidence, which leads to second guessing destroying any positive reinforcement crucial to learning. Not only is it frustrating, it is detrimental to progress since the student is left on his own to confirm that he has properly grasped the concept and is ready to move on. And what if if the student has taught himself incorrectly....? Some teachers enjoy showing off how well they have mastered a difficult subject. Steven Krantz (the author) seems more interested in demonstrating his own grasp of mathematic notation than teaching the subject of calculus to his students. If I wanted to discourage a student from ever taking any more math, I would send them a copy of this book. On the other hand, the information is all there and it is complete and correct. The format is one that serves well for a for the highly advanced student seeking a challenging brush up, or the casual mathematic genius looking for the equivalent of a crossword puzzle book in calculus. For us mere mortals, don't even open the book. It will do more harm than good.
Calculus Re-mystified
Demystified? Don't Think So. Some may say that calculus is an inherently boring subject - this book will do nothing to disabuse you of that notion. The writing style is almost a parody of the stultifying math teacher who puts everyone to sleep. I have quite a few math texts that I use for my tutoring business, and this is by far the least accessible of the lot. For the calculus novice, I'd recommend "How to Ace Calculus: the Streetwise Guide" as a far more readable text. For the more advanced student who wishes to review the basics or to supplement his or her Calc II or III course, "Calculus Demystified" would fit the bill. ... Read more |

Good book if you need help in Algebra. Even though things like these are missing, it still helps those who need help with the basic algebra problems. Example, fractions, decimals, and other things. It can help in more advanced topics, such as quadratics. I highly suggest this book to those who want a better understanding of pre-algebra or early-year algebra. You can get a great understanding of variables, and more advanced things, however, nothing too advanced is covered. If you are in Algebra 2, and you understand Algebra 1, do not purchase this book because it will not be useful to you.
Excellent book. The strength of the book is in its simplicity. Every chapter takes a very small step towards forward from previous material. It goes slow enough, and there are enough examples, that all the basic concepts are actually easy to understand and quickly learned.
Very Good for the Gifted Child
Good book for self-study My one not-so-minor complaint is the number of obvious mistakes in the problems/solutions. With better review/editing, they wouldn't be there.

Wonderfully written, straight-to-the-point book
Good, to-the-point, well-balanced. I would thoroughly recommend buying the Schaum's Easy Outline for DE in addition to this book, since I find the Easy Outline to be easier to pick up quickly on a first read. The Easy Outline is essentially the Outline, boiled down to the bare essentials and re-written to be easier to absorb quickly. The regular outline (this book) does a good job of filling in the gaps and providing more examples on top of the Easy Outilne. My copy (2nd edition, current) shows an original copyright date of 1973, with another in 1994 to reflect the Library of Congress title update (the title change was minute, and not worth repeating). I was surprised by the extreme similarity between some examples in the Ouline versus those in my course textbook (carrying a 2003 copyright in its 7th edition). It makes you wonder if this is the reference for the textbook writers! My only criticism of this book is that it is not a textbook. If it were, I wouldn't have to spend four times as much on another book which I use for not much more than the exercises. Oh, and the Outline HAS plenty of problems, both solved and not.

Good as supplemental text book, NOT good as primary textbook
An excellent introduction and review of Calculus ...... My experience has been that if I do not "do calculus" at least twice a week I forget the techniques (not ideas) almost immediately. Therefore, if you want a review of Calculus this book is a great tool. If you are new to calculus this book will help you understand important concepts like differentiation vs integration. I also found that reading pertinent chapters in Selby's "Geometry and Trigonometry For Calculus" and then reading related material in this book is a tremendous help. Another strong point is that for us over 50 the font size and book layout is easy on the eye. So whether you are a novice or someone who has not had the chance to use Calculus in a while; or someone "brand new" to Calculus, get this book. An excellent resource for learning and entertainment!!
Very good value for the budget-minded math student
Excellent value; good for self-study. I would recommend this book to anyone wishing to learn calculus by self-study. It is also a good supplement to a conventional text used in a class. The best way to learn math is by doing problems, and this book has plenty, including many detailed solutions. ... Read more |
